Free As A Bird

Today I officially deactivated my Twitter account. After six years, it has been a long time coming.

The site has been a cesspool of anger and leftism for a long time, but my ego kept me from leaving the site. Having nearly a thousand followers is pretty impressive for a nobody like me, and I enjoyed the attention. I also thought it would be a good platform to promote the blog, but new readers never followed me here. Lately, however, the very few high points completely outweighed the low ones, and it was time for me to get the hell out of there.

For the record, I am considering abandoning all social media – with the exception of the blog – and have been for a while now. Facebook, to me, is nothing but a useless time waster, and I hated most of the people I went to high school with, so why the f**k would I want to catch up?

So if you’re one of the tens of people who enjoyed my Twitter feed, I apologize, but I’m out.

  1. I fear it is only going to get worse with the upcoming midterm elections. We already know they messed with conservative sites during the last one.

  2. I have FB & keep it for what interests me (recipes & crafts) & to stay in touch with family that lives in other states.

  3. Ronni – Life s too short to deal with morons all day.

    William – I think Facebook is next. I’m rarely on, and I don’t get much out of it.

    MelP – Which is perfectly fine. FB just isn’t good for me, personally.

  4. I never got into the social media bit. I try to preserve what little anonymity I have left. Of course, even thusly, the NSA knows what I had for lunch today.
